Skate Warehouse is stoked as usual on new decks from Black Label featuring the graphic artwork of a skateboard legend, Neil Blender. Blender has been around since the beginning, gaining credit over the years as the inventor of the gay twist, Donner Party, and others. We’ve got a few photos of the guy and his work, plus the new Black Label Blender Decks at Skate Warehouse. Check out the epic video of Blender below.

From sock puppets to Creature, from Consolidated to “Send Help”, Todd Bratrud does what he does like a bad ass. The newest book to hit the pages of Skate Warehouse is the super awesome I Hate the Art of Todd Bratrud where Bratrud’s work is laid out in a quick and painless publication.
Today he is the owner of High Five Skateboards, but Bratrud started out as the art director for Consolidated Skateboards back in 1999. Since then and throughout the years the guy has done graphics, stickers, ads, and apparel for practically everybody worth mentioning in the Skateboard biz, from Consolidated to Flip, Birdhouse, Enjoi, Black Label, Creature, Real, Nike SB, and Volcom, Bratrud has had a part. He is also an illustrator and blogger for The Skateboard Mag. I Hate the Art of Todd Bratrud is published by Mark Batty Publishers and is available now at Skate Warehouse.
